Lost in the City of Angels

You’ve seen it in films, music videos, tv etc. I too had these different images of Los Angeles in my mind. After seeing it in real life you start to put together a giant puzzle of pieces that mean different things to you and some you had almost forgotten. It’s no longer this mystery but a real city with so many faces and places not just those tv/movie/music faces.

To be honest I’ve never really been that fascinated with LA or Hollywood for that matter. I always saw it as a playground of the rich and famous and big egos. I’m pretty sure it’s still all that but over the past couple of years I’ve started to appreciate LA in a whole new light – softer, greener, loving, filled with hope and new beginnings. Finally getting here was definitely one of the biggest highlights of this journey for me if not the biggest. Nothing is quite the way you imagined it, some are even better 🙂 in other words it’s really hard to put into words what it feels like to be here. Loving it!

Seeing Venice beach on the first day and watching the sunset behind Santa Monica pier I felt like I was in the right place. At that moment we didn’t even have a place to stay for the night. We had just seen one amazing loft space and were about to go see another after our third option fell thru. In the end it was really a no brainer 🙂 we ended up taking the coolest loft you could possibly have in Venice beach!! Thanks to Erika again for hunting down these on air bnb.

So after 4800 miles, 15 states, 16 cities and 24 nights on the road I’m ready to find out what LA has to offer!! All them legendary rock bars, tattoo shops (btw so sorry to hear what happened to Kat von D’s High Voltage, we were just about to head out and visit there when I read there had been a fire the previous night).. canyons, gigs etc. I hope I will find what I’m looking for this time… whatever that may be 😉
